Introduction to this Database



The 1890 US Census was destroyed by fire. All that remains are the special Veterans Schedules, which were stored in a different location. Many men enumerated in Robertson County (formed 1876) were living in Mason County at the time of their Civil War service between 1860 and 1865.

This is a complete transcription of the 1890 Robertson County Veterans Census, not an abstract. If a data field is blank, it is blank on the census sheet and I can provide no additional information. Spelling, punctuation and grammar errors are exactly as entered on the census form. Brackets [ ] mark notations for handwritten entries that are unclear, crossed out or over-written. Some of the handwriting was very difficult to read. In cases where a name can be interpreted more than one way, all are provided.

Keep in mind that this is a census of Civil War veterans and their widows still living in 1890. It does not include the many other
veterans who were deceased by 1890. If you believe your Robertson County ancestor served in the Civil War, but he is not included here there are three possibilities: He died before 1890; He moved to another county or state; He resided in an adjacent county in 1890 due to a county line adjustment. In any case, to find him you will have to do research in the compiled service records.


Also be aware that the enumerators' instructions were to record only men who served on the Union side in the war. In many instances, the enumerator included the Confederate soldiers, and then crossed them out. Since it is of equal value to researchers, I included the crossed-out information in all cases whenever it could still be read. The cross-outs are noted in brackets.

The census form was in two parts, with residence, disabilities and remarks at the bottom. The complexity of web tables makes it impossible to follow the original format. Use your scroll bar to read the entire entry.
